Travelling north of Dunoon, it’s a must to visit Puck’s Glen . Puck’s Glen is an atmospheric walk and a jewel in Cowal’s crown. Follow the trails through the gorge with its tumbling waterfalls and moist shady undergrowth. Your camera will never return to your pocket!
An entertaining hour spent casting the net in the roadside ditches near the Bishops Glen.
Lately the ditches on the forestry road adjacent to the Bishops Glen have been re-profiled and cleared of vegetation. Whilst doing this, large sumps were dug at various locations, leaving the perfect environment for frog spawn/tadpoles and newts.
There’s certainly no shortage of both and the final count was four prior to returning them to their habitat.
……….The Gruffalo Trail.
A great walk round Arkinglas Estate today. Mainly to find the Gruffalo, but the trees and shrubs can’t be ignored.
Plenty of info on the Gardens by clicking HERE
A trail through natural woodland, with waterfalls and bridges. A great family walk situated near the West Bay, Dunoon.
Numerous paths wind their way round and up the Glen. Taking the lower paths will lead you to the bridges that span the water of Berry Burn.
A mixed route of pathways and formed steps, not forgetting bridges.
You never know…..you may spot a fairy!!!
If the kids aren’t tired after the Glen, there’s a swing park and beach close by!
Its been a while since I was last here. Last trip was well in advance of the new walkways and bridge, in fact I think it was prior to the old bridge getting washed away!!
A recently upgraded pathway , makes it accessible for all. A great walk for the wee one, with a rocky beach and Castle at the end.
A meal or refreshment can be had at Invercottage, situated at the start of the walk, although it was still shut for the season on my visit.
The Castle is currently undergoing structural works.
In summer time this place is always busy,but in winter most tend to forget about it.
At just under a miles walk from the roadside, there’s no excuse not to visit this gem of a beach.
Navigation isn’t a problem as it’s well signed and the defined path leads you to the beach.
A Golden beach with shallow waters, an ideal spot for some beach combing or a wee picnic with the family.
